Entering training camp, second-year receiver Cody Latimer is penciled in as Denver's No. 3 receiver. After a quiet rookie season, Latimer is poised for a bigger role this fall.

"We have to get Cody in the mix and get him involved," head coach Gary Kubiak said at the team's media BBQ Thursday.

At least one of his teammates is expecting Latimer to have a big year.

"I just saw Cody and I'm excited for him," Emmanuel Sanders said. "You want to talk about a guy who's a physical tool just like Demaryius Thomas? I feel like coming in with the rookie class of Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Mike Evans and all those guys, he feels like he's kind of overlooked.

"I'm big on Cody. He's strong, he's fast and I think that's he's going to come in and he's going to have a big year for us. I'm looking forward to him just taking off and showing everybody, ‘Hey, look at 14 over here from the Denver Broncos.'"

Last year, Latimer caught two passes for 23 yards in the regular season.
